Zucchini noodles are incredible with anything in my honest opinion. I love how they are a wonderful and healthy replacement for pasta and rice. Not that I am opposed to delicious carbs like pasta or rice. I just need to find ways of curbing my carb intake and zucchini noodles are the perfect alternative and replacement.

And I’m getting in an extra serving of veggies! Win win!

If you’re a zucchini noodle lover like me, then you will love a few of my other low-carb recipes that center around zoodles!

I promise you guys n’ gals will love this recipe just as much as we did. It’s great for lunch, dinner and if you’re looking to prep your meals for the week. I generally do 3-4 days at a time. Having prepared meats, ready for on-the-go or for those lazy nights is essential. Otherwise I’m elbow deep in a bag of tortilla chips and dipping away in salsa.

Speaking of dipping! This sauce is perfect for dipping your favorite bread in to! And I’m ALL about sauces that are dip-able.

If you’re the same way, then you will absolutely love my Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce!

    Can you suBsitute the half a s half with coconut milk?

      Samantha Buckner

      I have not made this with coconut milk (I don’t work with it much), but I don’t see why not. It is known as a good substitute for cream based recipes. 🙂
